Plastic surgeon Danny's (Adam Sandler) best pulling technique is to gain the sympathy of women by pretending to be trapped in a terrible marriage.
Usually wearing a prop wedding band, Danny is surprised to find he woos beautiful teacher Palmer (Brooklyn Decker) without his ring. But any chance of Danny starting a relationship on the right foot is scuppered when Palmer finds the ring in his pocket and concludes that Danny is married.
In a desperate attempt to keep hold of his potential dream woman, Danny insists he is getting divorced, and ropes his assistant Katherine (Jennifer Aniston) into pretending to be his wife. Palmer seems to buy Danny's scam, but when she overhears Katherine talking to her kids, things get a lot more complicated.
Sandler and Aniston deliver more frothy fun in this rom-com based on 1969 comedy Cactus Flower (which was in turn adapted from Abe Burrows' Broadway play). Falling into familiar roles, the star duo hit all the required beats, while swimsuit model Decker catches the eye in her feature film debut.
There are a few star cameos to look out for, too, with Nicole Kidman playing it for laughs as Katherine's old high school rival Devlin, and musician Dave Matthews as her husband Ian. Decker also shares a surprise scene with real-life husband, tennis ace Andy Roddick.
